Transcript MVC Meet Oklahoma A&M came into Houston seeking its 14th straight MVC track title. No one was expected to give the Ags much trouble excepf maybe the thin Cougar squad. After racing all night in the most hotly contested meet, the whole affair boiled down to the last thirty years of the final event. The Aggies needed to establish a new record in the mile relay to win the meet and turn back a brilliant Cougar bid.. Larry McBride, of Houston, was high point scorer of the meet with 141/4 points and was the unanimous pick for the Seymour Lieberman Outstanding Individual Trophy. He won the 100 and 220-yard dashes, placed second in the 220-yard low hurdles and ran the last leg on the record breaking sprint relay squad. McBride's mark of 20.6 in the 220, bettered the record of 20.7 set by Roland Locke of Nebraska in 1926. Three's a winning crowd, Kirby Kett, Doyle Jones and Larry McBride streak across the finish line. McBride receives Outstanding Athlete Trophy. SUMMARIES POLE VAULT Manwarring, Okla.
